Abstract Two computer programs for estimating blood alcohol concentration (BAC) are described. BACTAB generates individualized tables for BAC estimation based upon a client's sex, body weight, amount of consumption, and drinking rate. ALCOMP convertes data from client self-monitoring cards into weekly summary statistics and plots a table for each individual client showing BAC estimates at each half-hour interval throughout the week. Various applications of these programs in controlled drinking therapies and in treatment outcome research are discussed.
